The pensioner was left terrified when the four-legged kinkajou – an animal usually found in the jungles of Central and South America – climbed into bed with her and fell asleep.

Stranded with her surprise guest, the woman phoned her daughter, whose husband Carlos Aguaras picked up the phone.

She then begged him to come over and catch the hairy beast.

Mr Aguaras said: ‘I was awaken by a phone call at 2am which is never good news, and it was from my terrified mother-in-law.’

He explained he then shot round to her home – where she lives with a carer who was fast asleep – to try and capture the wild animal.

By the time he arrived, the kinkajou – which typically spend most of their time in trees – had made it into the home’s attic.

He managed to lour it out with food before capturing it in a cage and taking it to the vet.

It turned out to be someone’s pet that had escaped. Freakily, they can turn their feet backwards so they can run either forwards or backwards. Weird!
